Time to Stop Strips

"Extra Extra Fancy" has reached the length of a queen bed.  Since it is to be a TWIN, I'm stopping with the strips now.  I will put a "stopper" strip down the sides and then a wider border.  I really like this strippy look!  And it is doing a good job working off some left over blocks and strips in my stash.

Good last rehearsal before the Grand Rapids Women's Chorus winter concert this Saturday [7:30 pm at Trinity Methodist].  Lori, our Director, says that we are "ready for an audience".  No Christmas music, so it won't interrupt your observance of Advent.   Free will offering, no intermission [concert lasts only one hour], and refreshments afterwards.  A good deal.  Hope some of you can make it!



Warm bed last night, tho' TWO quilts are a little heavy
ipod lets me review last night's rehearsal

It looks wonderful Sara, very visually pleasing! I hope you will re-visit this style again, and soon if you have the "spare parts"! Hope you'll add this top as an X-tra on your challenge list! Hugs, Finn

Scrappy quilter said...

I agree, it does look wonderful. Great job.

That quilt came out quite nicely. I guess you stopped just in time.
Our Choir at Tokyo Union Church is singing Benjamin Brittain, Ceremony of Carols for both services this Sunday. We have been working on it since October. I love singing with this choir. It is like a family.

It's looking great! I think I've said it before but you're making me want to play in my orphan blocks. :- )
